Photo Security and HIPAA

HIPAAThis was a story that I did on the subject of HIPAA, but was never published at the original time. As about a year has passed, the volume of data has increased significantly, which shows no sign of abating. With big data and artificial intelligence being current buzzwords, lest we do not forget the compliance issues that are involved. Both of the main cloud providers, Amazon Web Services (Manager & lowella@amazon.com, 2017, p. 5) and Azure (Stevan D. Vidich, 2014, p. 2), are both HIPAA compliant right out of the box. This is not to exclude other providers, but they are the main players in mindshare and marketshare. Amazon is the clear dominant leader  (Joe Panettieri, 2017, para. 4), but Microsoft can never be counted out.
